Mobility

Number of vehicles

The total number of vehicles at our company decreased year over year by around 1 percent. The DT Group in Germany, Magyar Telekom Hungary and Telekom Romania, in particular, were able to reduce the number of vehicles in their fleets. For detailed comments on the figures for each individual company, please refer to the interactive benchmarking tool.

We were able to significantly increase the total number of vehicles with alternative drives in our fleet by around 23 percent from the previous year. We continue to focus on alternative and fuel-efficient engines - which of course must also be financially viable - when purchasing new company cars and service vehicles.

Job ticket

In 2016, 16,497 employees of the Deutsche Telekom Group in Germany used a discount season ticket provided by their employer to commute by public transport. This reduction is due in part to relocations.

We offer regional discount season tickets (monthly or annually) to our employees at many of our German Deutsche Telekom sites, especially in high-density population areas. The offer encourages our employees to use climate-friendly public transportation and helps them keep their commuting costs down.

 

Reporting against standards

By reporting on the use of discount season tickets, we partially cover the V04-13 (Percentage of services to reduce impact on climate) EFFAS indicator. This data is also relevant for criteria 2 (Implementation of the sustainability strategy) and 10 (Innovation and product management) of the German Sustainability Code. It is also used for reporting on the Global Compact img principles 7 (Precautionary approach) and 8 (Promoting environmental responsibility).
